Transitions and Mentoring Toolkit

About the site

Welcome to the Transitions and Mentoring Toolkit.

This is a place where you can find information and support whether you are an international student or staff working with international students in a mentoring or other role.

The Transitions and Mentoring Toolkit has directly emerged from the Identities and Transition research project, which was funded by the Mastercard Foundation in partnership with the University of Edinburgh and the University of British Columbia. 

This Toolkit reflects the experiences and lived knowledge of both Mastercard Foundation scholars who have undertaken the journey from their respective home countries in Africa to universities in the UK and North America, and of university staff who have worked with them in a mentoring capacity.
